Update on vaccines & amendments to lockdown restrictions

Published on March 26, 2021
Despite surging case numbers, the Ford government announced a loosening of more restrictions today, just as it added new regions into lockdown. I want to keep you up to date with these developments, but also urge you to please exercise extreme caution right now, and keep up with the actions we know can make a difference: limiting contact with others, hand washing, masking up and keeping physical distance can make a real difference right now.

Vaccines

Beginning Saturday, March 27 at 8 a.m., appointments at Toronto’s mass immunization clinics will be expanded to residents born in 1951 or earlier. Eligible residents can also be vaccinated at hospital immunization clinics or pharmacies. Find links to the registration sites at: maritstiles.ca/vaccines
